Defending the Family: Intersections of Domestic Violence and Systemic Inequality

March 30, 2016 @ 11:45 am - 1:15 pm

For DV victims in low-income communities of color, harm might not simply end with the abuser. Policing and enforcing the laws that purport to protect victims and survivors can have unintended consequences for those individuals and the communities around them. Advocates from various fields take different approaches to protecting against violence, and are confronted with these difficult tensions every day.
The Legal Aid Bureau invites three panelists to explore the intersections between DV, racial and gender inequality, and poverty law, and consider how various models work to empower survivors without causing more harm.
